Vulcanizer is a special stage available on the 6th of every month if the player has previously completed all Crazed Cat stages. Completing this stage unlocks the True Form of Crazed Tank Cat. Using Cat Food to continue the battle is prohibited in this stage.
This stage is basically a much harder version of Absolute Defense, so the same strategies can work. Gory is replaced by Gory Black, Owlbrow is 3x stronger, and the three Duches are replaced by one Capy. The boss, Manic Eraser Cat, has 1.5 times more HP and damage than Crazed Tank Cat.
The use of 5 meatshields is pretty much not an option. One of the main problems is the buffed Gory Blacks that rush you in the beginning. Ururun is the best way to kill them, because of her fast attack. Manic Eraser Cat has nearly 5 million health; therefore, it will take a while to kill him. Chip at his health with a stack of King Dragons or Prisoners alongside Bahamut Cat, while stalling the enemies using Ururun and Dark Emperor Catdam's status effects. Use Crazed Sexy Legs when Capy is out to deal damage to the Owlbrows from outside of the boss's range.
If a player is willing to use Uber Rares, one can bring Ultralan Pasalan to replace both Ururun and Catdam, and Bahamut with God-Emperor Megidora, Vars or Kamukura, cats who all have better DPS and health along with status against boss support. Crazed Legs and King Dragon may be replaceable by stronger DPS units like Divine Thundia. Diabolic Gao does triple damage (Almost 120k!) and briefly freezes Manic Eraser, as well as outranging it.
If you're lucky enough to have Uber Rares with super long range like Super Galaxy Cosmo or Aphrodite, they make the level a lot easier. You can easily stack them to kill the support units behind the Manic Eraser. Additionally, if the Eraser is kept pinned to the base via Sniper Cat and Sniper the Heavy, your long-ranged attackers can hit the base behind the Eraser, and you can win without even eliminating it! Be careful with Cosmo though, as his damage output isn’t very high he needs much protecting. If you do protect him OR Aphrodite (Having both wastes slots) the shortcut is much nicer.
Having Shishilan Pasalan can make quick work of Manic Eraser, outranging him and having a high damage output. Be sure to have proper shielding in front of it!
Strategy 2 (no Gacha) by Emonkid
Lineup: 5 cheap meatshields (Crazed Wall, Crazed Macho, Li'l Mohawk, Mohawk), Ururun, Crazed Bahamut Cat (not Awakened Bahamut), Prisoner Cat, Crazed Sexy Legs/Manic Macho Legs, and Crazed Dragon/high-level Dragon
Items: Sniper The Cat, Rich Cat, and Cat CPU
Stall until you have full money and then kill the Gory Blacks and Owlbrows to recover some money. After the boss spawns there are 3 essential rules:
- If the boss is at the corner of the enemy base, TURN OFF Sniper Cat. Turn it on once it gets a significant distance from the enemy base or any cycle enemy spawns*.
- TURN OFF Cat CPU if your money is approximately <5500 or so. Spam meatshields until you recover money and then turn on Cat CPU again.
- Try NOT to stack Ururun Cats as such a stack can INCREASE the chances of losing the level. It can cause your attackers to get too near to the boss and get defeated instantly. Try spawning Bahamut Cat as much as possible instead and only spawn Ururun before the Gories spawn.
Those are the 3 essential rules after the boss spawns. Follow them and you’re good.
Alternatives can be cats that have greater range than the boss that are alsoanti-Red/Black for extra effectiveness. The Peach Devils, Diabolic Gao, Mighty Lord Gao, and Megaphrodite all come to mind. Bunny & Canard's first form can be used to clear out the cycling foes, but will do nothing to the Owlbrows or the boss.
If you're feeling lucky, you don't NEED to bring Sniper or Rich Cat into this battle, but they help a lot and save you at the most important times. Cat CPU is required.
Row 2: 1 anti-Black to take care of the Gory Blacks, lv. 20+ Crazed Sexy Legs, Crazed Bahamut, Ururun Wolf (mine was level 24, but make sure it can knock back the Gory Blacks in 1~2 hits) and a Super/Uber Rare with over 500 range/Lil Nyandam (Lufalan Pasalan was used on my team)
The strats: Start the battle off stalling the peons, wait for all Gories to stack then send out either your anti-Black or Ururun Wolf. Sending out a heavy anti-Black, such as Weightlifter, makes it easier to kill these Gories, and allows you to spend more time gaining money. The main plan is to NOT hit the base until the two Capies come out, essentially allowing for the player to summon two Ururuns and two Bahamuts on the field. Summon some Crazed Sexy Legs and keep walling; once Owlbrows appear, you may summon a Bahamut. Now once the first two Capies come, summon your first Bahamut and stall, it should be able to kill the Owlbrowls. With this you should have a level 8 Worker Cat and a half-full wallet. Summon your final long-ranged attacker when ONE of the Capies dies, then wait for your wallet to reach max money while constantly spamming meatshields. Once the second Capy dies, turn on Cat CPU and go do other activities, for M. Eraser is gonna take a while.
Lineup: Mohawk Cat, Crazed Macho/Manic Mohawk, Eraser Cat, Crazed Wall Cat, Kasa Jizo, King Dragon Cat, Crazed Dragon Cat, Crazed Bahamut Cat, and Shishilan Pasalan.
Items: Rich Cat (required), Cat CPU (optional)
- Stall the peons and Gory Blacks with Jizo and meatshields.
- Once the Gory Blacks are dead, allow the base to be damaged.
- When the boss appears, summon Shishilan Pasalan (and Bahamut if you have the money) and spam your meatshields and Dragons.
- Repeat the process until you win. Make sure to keep spamming your meatshields, Jizo, and Dragons. Also send out Bahamut and Shishilan Pasalan whenever you get the chance and protect them.
Strategy 5 BlackFrost (Ubers+No Rich Cat)
Lineup: Bring meatshields, all cats should be hypermaxed including Crazed Wall.
You will need:
A teaspoonful of luck
So it turns out that Diabolic Gao, when hypermaxed, is one of the highest DPS units the game that has a range of over 300 (because Awakened Bahamut), if the target is traitless. We're talking over 120k a shot and good attack speed coupled with 480 range. This means that Diabolic Gao obliterates the Crazed, Manic and Awakening stages (barring ones like Manic Flying where the boss is not traitless). Here, get yourself to Worker Cat level 4 (if you have maxed out efficiency it will be 2240$ to the next level), throw out a Crazed Wall to stop the Snaches and wait momentarily. About 3 seconds after the 3rd Snache hits the Crazed Wall, send out a Kasa Jizo. When the Jizo is killed by the Gories, let loose the other ranged attackers and a few meatshields (outside of the heavy hitters). Expect minor damage to the base. When the Manic Eraser appears, send out the rest of your attackers and begin the Meatshield Spam™. Ururun Wolf may die, but don't fret; Diabolic Gao can handle the Owlbrows and the Capies without her aid. Continue the spam, and the 120k per hit Diabolic Gao should kill Manic Eraser soon enough. The battle will probably go on for long enough for you to have two on the field.
Strategy 6 (ft. Certain Ubers)
- This does require Super Galaxy Cosmo, but does not require much effort if you have all these cats.
Lineup: Crazed Macho Cat, Mohawk Cat, Eraser Cat, Crazed Wall Cat, another cheap meat shield (Gato Amigo, Catburger etc.), Crazed Sexy Legs/Manic Macho Legs Cat, Luxury Bath Cat, Ururun Cat (Or any other high DPS cat similar to Ururun), God-Emperor Megidora, Super Galaxy Cosmo
Powerups: Cat CPU, Sniper the Cat, Rich Cat
Strategy: First use Eraser and Crazed Wall to stall Snache once they are halfway. Also summon in 1 Manic Macho/Crazed Sexy Legs to get rid of peons. Once the Gory Blacks come out, let them kill your cats until they reach your base. Once the Gory Blacks are in a position where Ururun Cat can attack them without being hurt, summon her in. Once the Gorys are dead, 1 or 2 Capy should be spawned. Now send in everything EXCEPT Super Galaxy Cosmo. Megidora, Ururun and Bath Cat should be hurting the Capy very severely. If you hit the base and manage to get Manic Eraser Cat spawned, don't worry. Your damaging cats should be out of his attack range, leaving you free to kill the Capy. Just make sure to keep meat shielding. Once the Capy are dead, turn on Cat CPU and let it do the rest. You should have sufficient money to keep summoning in all your cats, but if not, simply turn it off and manually meat shield. Owlbrow should replenish your cash and the Gory Blacks shouldn't be too much of a problem. By the time you kill Manic Eraser Cat, you should have 5-7 Super Galaxy Cosmos, which is used to kill the other enemies should you need to kill more supporting enemies and your high DPS cats are on cool down. Now, say hello to Manic Eraser Cat, because you just got him!
